Actual mug being sold is shown in the accompanying photos. Mug was used twice for, you guessed it, my morning coffee, and was run through my dishwasher twice before being put up with the rest of the mugs in our display corner cabinet. A friend in Pittsburgh recently gave me another mug identical to this one, so I'm letting this one go. It is in excellent shape; no chips, cracks or stains. Aforementioned friend says it's a rare mug . . . I can't tell, though, since I have two of them.
